I just finished Jason's article! Very informative! Liked the facts at the end. I had no idea Hermin's blood was blue.

Also, I'd be interested to hear what tricks you have taught your vulgaris!

Oops, I don't look at this board very often. I'm glad you liked the article at least it had a happy ending. Yes it's still alive after 8 months :) .

I have put a few of it's 'tricks' on the health & Husbandry board today.

One of it's tricks is it knows when feeding time is. It comes to the top corner of the aquarium. If I dont' get the food in quickly it climbs out and takes the food along with anything else it can grab, before plopping back in.

It sometimes squirts me with water and always manages to get me in the face. The force of water is quite amazing it often hits the ceiling.
